Beautiful Gdansk is wonderful to visit. It's difficult to imagine that in the past, some of it in the recent past, this city has experienced horrific crimes against humanity. A visit to the Polish Post Office Museum is a sobering reminder that this city has had more than its fair share of sorrow. This is a still functioning post office;... More

A shrine within the post office building to the brave people who defended the post office from the invading army on 01 09 1939. The visit to the museum made me go back to find out the circumstances that led to this heroism.

This museum is very small, and most of the signage is in Polish. However, it does tell a story that is very important to the Polish people, about the postal workers who tried to defend their city from the Nazis in 1939. The material is very interesting, but it would be helpful if to read up on the incident before... More

One of the first clashes of WWII. Main Polish post office in Free City of Gdańsk between world wars. On 1st September 1939 about 100 Polish workers defended the building from attack of German troops. They only lasted till evening of that day, but right to this days it is a symbol of Polish fighting spirit. Most of the building,... More

We visited the Post Office primarily because of the beautiful statue in remembrance for those who died during and after the siege. It's not the best museum display I've seen, but it is very informative and quite moving. I would recommend anyone visiting to Gdansk to go here. It is part of the rich heritage and terrible past suffered by... More

This is a must-see. In front is an expressive steel statue which kind-of expresses the site's history (the Nazis blew up the Post Office before launching WW2 to cut communications). The building itself is fine, but it is down the side and to the rear that the real story emerges. Here is where lines of victims were shot against the... More

not much to see ecxept of the monument on the outside, which is a very nice one and near the city center, so a walk by it is enough

We went here not really knowing much about the post office's history. This is a quick 15 minute walk from the Old Town and is very cheap to enter (6 Zloty I think). We spent just under an hour looking through all of the artifacts, pictures, and reading the history. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend this to... More

This building was almost opposite our hotel (Great Western Bonum) and is well worth a visit. Surprisingly it is still a working post office. There are very moving photographs and artefacts to see. There is a lovely monument in front of the building and do look round outside of building where there is more to see.
